Land’s End is England’s most westerly point. It’s one of the most famous spots in Cornwall and tourists flock here every year to stand at the iconic landmark and to enjoy the entertainment and activities on offer at the attraction. You may not expect it but many visitors also come to see farm animals.
Greeb Farm is literally a hop, skip and jump along the headland from the main Land’s End Landmark site, which is itself not too far away from Penzance. The 200-year-old farmstead would once have been typical of so many similar farms along the Cornish coast but today it stands almost alone. But stand it does as it’s been well restored over the years and makes for a perfect home for the farm’s collection of small animals that small and big kids can meet.
There may not be as many animals on show at Greeb as some big attractions but there are plenty to keep the whole family engrossed during a visit here. That’s means adults as well as kids. The sheep, goats, pigs, chickens, miniature ponies, rabbits and ferrets are all used to being around people and some of them can be petted and even fed at certain times of the day. Also check out the converted barn on the site that caters for traditional Cornish craft workshops. You can watch talented local artists and craftspeople at work and pick yourself a special gift or keepsake from a range of unique crafts, all made at Greeb Farm.
After all that animal petting and craftwork, finish up your trip to Greeb Farm with a walk around the site. There are countless vantage points of Land’s End and the spectacular headland, plus the walk from Greeb up to the gorgeous sands at Sennen Cove, which is less than two miles away, is highly recommended. So stop horsing around and eating like a pig in Cornwall’s world-famous restaurants. Instead, head down to Greeb Farm and meet the animals. It’s the cutest thing you’ll do all day.
